Will Revision Buddies work for you?
Our apps are designed to support teachers, parents and students during the revision period in the lead up to GCSE exams as the perfect complement to traditional media. Our apps present an excellent addition to both home and classroom learning as they can be used on mobile devices, desktops or on the big screen in the classroom. Teachers or parents can view student progress and results if they purchase for a child or class using our Student Enrolment feature.
Revision Buddies apps are accessible and easy to use – as well as providing the opportunity for revision on the move, students can use them at home as homework or in the classroom as a class activity that motivates the whole class. With access on or offline this is the perfect opportunity for students to flip the classroom, enhance their learning and boost confidence in the preparation for exams.
If a teacher or parent would like to enrol a class of students or a child they can make use of the Student Enrolment feature of our website and then the monitor progress of the students, viewing how they have answered the quizzes and see their results. This feature is only available for quizzes taken via our website, although students will have access to the apps as well.
Students can use our apps on their personal devices wherever they are and whenever they have some free time and they can track their own progress through progress graphs for each topic within the app.
Our apps provide the perfect opportunity for curious minds. Students can inform themselves, opening their eyes on new topics and gaining further insight into their course, safe in the knowledge that the app is adapted to their specific course requirements. Enable your students to engage with a proactive learning opportunity and to boost confidence and knowledge in the lead up to exams.
In the Classroom
Many classrooms are now fitted with large Android powered touch screens such as those provided by Clevertouch. Such devices enable teachers to run our apps as fun class based activities where knowledge can be tested and explanations discussed.

Teacher review – December 2015
I am loving the design and how easy the app is to use. The multiple choice aspect works really well and the tracking idea will help motivate students

Your apps are proving very popular with our Y11s including my own nephew who found the science ones very useful this weekend
